    I am worried whether the new thin iPad Air 2 will bend like the iPhone 6 Plus. Apple yet again has made thinner so the question is:

    Of course it will bend, it's made of Aluminum. Just apply enough force. Just like anything made of a malleable material.

    Surely it would, but I doubt it will be an issue unless people start jamming them into their back pockets and sitting on them like they do with the 6 plus. Not bloody likely.

    iPads gets left on the couch at my house all day every day. I'm pretty sure I've sat on my iPad 3 quite a few times (unknowingly under a blanket or pillow). Hopefully the air 2 holds up to normal abuse.

    Before checking whether it will bend, check whether the screen has hollow issue.

    Left my current Air in its black leather smart case on my cars black leather
    passenger seat where it looks almost invisible. My wife got in and sat on it!
    She shot off pretty promptly and luckily no damage done to the iPad.

    Now I always remember to never ever leave it there again. Maybe safer
    to get a red case for the Air 2.

    I dont see it as an issue since you dont put ipad into your jeans pockets and people carry it most of the time in their hands or bags

    It'll bend if you're too dim to use it properly. And your laptop will break if you tap-dance on it.
    Silly question. Don't sit on your iPad and you'll be fine.

    Can we get moderators to ban these stupid threads, please?

    It wasn't funny a month ago and its certainly not funny now.
